The Moderator's Twenty-Eighth Annual Address 

Mr. Vice-Moderator, fellow ministers, messengers, and friends of the High Point Education^ 
and Missionary Baptist Association: It becomes my happy privilege to deliver my twenty-eighth 
annual address. I assure you that words are inadequate to express the height and depth of 
appreciation of having been able to meet you once more, face to face. As we assemble here for 
this twenty-eighth annual session, I greet you with a prayer of thanksgfiving. We are grateful 
that the Lord has enabled us to gather here at the New Jerusalem Baptist Church of 
Winston-Salem, N.C. I wish to thank the President of the Usher Board Convention, Brother 
Ernest Holt; all of the officers for their support; Brother William H. Gwyn, President of the 
Sunday School Convention; and all officers for their loyal support. The President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary, Mrs. E. B. Anderson; Mrs. Annie M. Lewis, Junior Directress of the Junior 
Department; and all officers for their loyal support. 

PROGRESSIVE NATIONAL BAPTIST CONVENTIONAL, INC. 

I wish to thank the association for sending me to the National Baptist Convention. The 
convention was held in Washington, D.C., September 6-12, 1976. Theme "The Bicentennial - A 
Nation Remembering and Repenting" II Chronicle 7:14. It was a great session two Baptist 
denominations joined in mission. Dr. Thomas KUgorl was elected president of the convention.

God's Work Is Sufficient For Any Time That We Live Isaiah 55:1-12 

1. Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, 
and eat; yea come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 

2. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which 
satisfieth not? Harken dihgently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul 
delight itself in fatness. 

3. Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an 
everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. 

4. Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander the people. 



5. Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not and thee 
shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God and for the Holy One of Israel; for He hath 
glorified thee. 

6. Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. 

7. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return 
unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. 

8. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. 

9. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and 
My thoughts than your thoughts. 

10. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but 
watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and 
bread to the eater. 

11. So shall My word be that goeth out of mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall 
accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it. 

12. For ye shall go out with joy, and be forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall 
break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 

MATTHEW 6:34 

Take therefore no thought for the morrow for the morrow shall take thought for the things of 
itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. 

ST. MATTHEW 4:4 

But He answered and said. It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word 
that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 

ISAIAH 22, 23 

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 

I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not 
return, that unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. 

PSALM 119:11, 105 

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path

PRESroENTS ADDRESS 

CURRENT APPLICATION TO LIFE 

Today's world is really no different than James' world was. We are still plaqued with sin and 
evil in all respect, and in all places. We have the wicked rich, the unjust rulers and judges, the 
slick merchants, the lying politicians, and the unmerciful leaders of crime. 

These people are stiU going to and fro throughout the world abusing exploiting, and 
murdering the innocent, the poor, and the disinherited, causing them undue trouble and 
suffering. 

Now, in such a world as this today, there are still those who dare to follow Jesus Christ and 
His way of life. These followers of Jesus try in many ways acceptable unto God to combat the 
causes of sin, evil and unrighteousness. 

Their task is not an easy one. It always seem everything is on the side of wrong, but they 
know that if those who thirst after righteousness will be steadfast, God will give them the 
victory. Only an enduring faith in the justices and ultimate victory of God in the world gives 
hope and inspires the righteous to give their all in helping to lead others to Jesus Christ "the 
way, and the truth, and the Life." 

Behold, God is mine helper. The Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil 
unto mine enemies: Cut them off in thy truth, for he hath delivered me out of all trouble, and 
mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies. Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall 
sustain thee: Psalms 54:4, 5, 7, and Psalms 55:22. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ernest Holt

VICE PRESIDENrS ADDRESS 

To the moderator, Bro. President, members and friends of this great Usher's Convention. I 
have enjoyed working as your vice president. It was not always a smooth road to travel, but 
with the love of God, we made it. For without Him, what can we do. He will put bread in our 
mouth, clothes on our back, love in our home and heart. May He bless each and keep us in His 
hand. 

Yours in Christ. 
Bro. Carnell D. Leak 

PROGRAM CHAIRMAN 

Brother President, bro. moderator, officers, delegates and friends, I have done my best as the

THE EARLY SUNDAY SCHOOL 
DEUTERONOMY 6:4-7 

In England, in 1780, Robert Raiks a Publisher of the Gloucester Journal, needed a gardener. 
So he went to look for one. He was shocked to see the streets filled with dirty, miserable 
children who were shouting profane language, and made themselves a general nuisance. Whe he 
inquired of a woman concerning them, she said, "If you think this is bad you ought to see them 
on Sunday." 

Now at that time in England, only one person out of twenty could read or write. The speller 
thus became the first textbook, then the Bible, from which passages were both memorized and 
read. 

In 1804 the British Foreig^n Bible Society was formed to provide Bibles at cost for people, not 
only in England, but other nations as well. Adults wanted to be included in the Bible classes, so 
for the first time they were invited to attend. 

Here in America they too made use of the speller, the hymnbook, and the Bible. The Bible was 
considered the chief textbook in the school, and children became thoroughly versed in its 
teaching. 

The Sunday School movement which had its beginning in England with Robert Raiks soon 
came to America and began to be adopted slowly by the churches. There was a tendency at first 
for ministers to have nothing to do with it, and it was considered something apart from the 
church. However, its value was eventually recogpnized, and in the period of 1810-1825 the 
churches began to take over the Sunday School as part of the regular church program. 

Benjamin F. Jacobs and John H. Vincent were responsible for early Sunday School. Vincent 
began the first Sunday School Institute. Whereever people went, they could find the same 
lesson studied. In 1906 a Graded Lesson Conference was held, and a defhiite work was started 
toward bringing out a graded lesson series. Lessons were soon prepared so that there was a 
different lesson for each age.

AS DELEGATE TO THE ALL BAPTIST ASSEMBLY 

Mr. President, Mr. Moderator, Delegates, Members and Friends of the High Point 
Educational and Missionary Association, I am very appreciative to you for giving me the 
privilege of going to the All Baptist Assembly at the Benton Convention Center in 
Winston-Salem, N.C, August 2-5, 1976. 

The Assembly was so dynamic and appealing that I attended almost every meeting for 
anything. The sermons, the addresses, the information was a memory that I will treasure to the 
utmost. However, the Sunday School's day was Wednesday afternoon with Mr. J. J. Lassiter 
presiding over the Sunday School Department and Mr. Jim Bellamy presiding over the B.T.U. 
department. The theme for the Sunday School and B.T.U. was Christian Freedom and 
Responsibility Through Teaching, this was delivered by Mr. Lassiter, and Christian Freedom 
and Responsibility Through Training, this was delivered by Mr. Jim Bellamy Both Addresses 
were sermons rich with every thing that makes a sermon good. 

There were skits and reports during this meeting. There were young people from churches 
throughout the State of North Carolina, from the Sunday School and B.T.U. departments 
participating in the program. Highlighting this was an Oratorical contest for a scholarship, this 
was won by a young man, and believe me he was great. 

Christian Education In The Seventies was delivered by Mr. Leo WUliams Jr. Who also gave a 
wonderful address, but the most enthusiastic attraction was the people that the State 
Convention had named for award for various achievements for past activities, and what was 
more pleasing than to see our own Dr. Prince Graves walk up and receive an award for his work 
in the State. This convention should be very proud of Dr. Graves, for he electricfied the 
convention with his speech. 

Our Convention was represented with $25.00 which is the minimum that will be considered for 
representation, but when you learn the numerous things that the State Assembly does with 
your Dollar you will agree with me that this amount is too little for 27 churches to send. 

Truly I enjoyed every minute of the Assembly and would love to attend again this year when 
the Assembly will meet in Durham, N.C. 

Your Delegate to The All Baptist Assembly, 

W. E. Spann

REPORT OF THE VICE PRESIDENT 
JUNE 17, 1977 

Mr. President, Mr. Moderator, Delegates, Members and Friends of the High Point 
Educational and Missionary Baptist Association; I W. E. Spann your Vice President would like 
to make the following report. 

REPORT 

To me the year of 1976-77 has been one of the best years that the Sunday School Convention 
has had in a number of years, and I am very grateful to the Lord for allowing me to play a small 
part in the success that has been experienced by the convention. 

To those of you who attended the last annual convention, and also the mid year term can 
attest to the fact that we had the greatest attendance of all time at each convention, and 
certainly we need to thank God for his blessings upon our Convention. We took a step forward 
and ventured to take part in the State Assembly, a role that the convention will never regret, 
and I was more than delighted to have had the opportunity to represent us at the All Baptist 
Assembly last year, I do hope that you will continue to participate in this, and also that you will 
set your sights on other goals. 

As Vice President I have tried to work with the President in every way that he wanted me to, 
and at no time was there any disagreement between us on any thing, when he wanted me to visit 
a church I went, if he wanted me to accompany him on a mission I did, so we had a lovely time 
working together, just as we have for the past 16 years and I thank God for such cooperation 
that exists in our Convention. 

I have enjoyed the work and serving as Vice President has given me a broader scope in the 
knowledge of procedures, and other matters that pertain to rules and order, I served the best I 
knew and will continue to do so if the convention so desire. 

My prayer for you is that the Lord will ever bless you and that your life as a Sunday School 
Convention will never end. 

Submitted by your Vice President, 

W. E. Spann 

COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION 

Mr. Moderator, Mr. President and other convention Members. We, the committee on 
education recommend this convention asked each church to keep in touch with Rev. Rouson for 
christian education. And that each church donate to the scholarship fund each year. We further 
recommend the seminary department of the Baptist Convention of Nashville, Tenn. be used as a 
course of adult and child literature in our churches. We also recommend that the convention 
send delegates to the North Carolina Sunday School Convention to be held here in GuiKord 
county next April. And also a delegate to the National Sunday School Congress.

Dear Sir, 

My name is Kevin Jerome Jones, I am 17 years old and I attend First Calvary Baptist Church 
in Winston-Salem. My pastor is Dr. W. L. Wilson. I am the director of the young adult choir and 
is active member of the Sunday School Department. 

I have been accepted as an undergraduate student at Wake Forest University in 
Winston- Salem. In order for me to attend Wake Forest this fall I need to apply for financial aid 
because both of my parents are retired and my father is totally disabled. This make it impossible 
for my parents to meet all the educational costs. 

I graduated from East Forsyth Senior High School on June 10, 1977. In school I participated in 
the French Club. An overall average of my grades would be a high "B". 

While attending Wake Forest I plan to major in the field of psychology or perhaps go to 
medical school and study to be a psychiatrist. 

I feel I am qualified for this scholarship and I hope you will give me some consideration as a 
recipient. 

Sincerely yours, 
Kevin Jerome Jones

ANNUAL MESSAGE 

Brother Moderator, my pastor, Rev. R. H. Brooks, Ministers, Officers, Delegates, and 
members of the 64th Annual Convention of the Woman's Auxiliary of the High Point 
Educational and Missionary Baptist Association. 

I consider this a great Blessing as well as a privilege to come before you tonight to deliver 
another Annua! Message. First of all I would like to say I thank God for the many blessings He 
has bestored upon me. I can say that I have had my share of ups and downs but with His divine 
guidance He has kept and guided me through another year. My sincere appreciation goes out 
tonight to my vice president. Sister Mamie Wilson and Sister Irene Scales, for their assistance 
and prayers. To the other members of the executive board it is hard to find words to express 
how your devoted services have aided in making this one of the greatest auxiliaries in the state. 
To Rev. W. L. Wilson, our Moderator, I would like to say in behalf of the Woman's Auxiliary, 
we are deeply greatful to you for your words of wisdom and guidance that you have given this 
organization. To the ministers and each church, I would like to personally thank you for the 
cooperation and support you have given me during the year. I ask your continued support 
throughout the years to come because we must strive to reach higher heights in this 
organization and with out you this will be impossible. 

Tonight I would like to share with you some further thoughts on our theme: "What The World 
Need Now." We have already heard some wonderful thoughts on "Love" and "Faith," and 
tomorrow I know it will be well rounded up with "Grace". Therefore, I am going to center my 
thoughts around: 

"WHAT THE WORLD NEED NOW" 
- A GREAT AWAKENING - 

We are living in a time when seemingly man have replaced love with hate, faith with doubt 
and grace with the lust of the world. We are asleep. We are not aware of what is about to happen 
to us and the world in which we live. We have pushed aside the one person that have blessed us 
with life, health, knowledge and replaced Him with evil, destruction and material wealth. These 
things seem to come first and farmost in our lives today. I say to you tonight that we need a 
great awakening. 

We must realize that Christ is the only way and that He should be the center of our lives. It is 
our responsibility to make this become a reality. We must let our lights so shine that others 
might see our good work and want to pattern after us. Through-out the history of the world man 
have been setting examples for other to follow. They have had good experiences as well as bad 
ones. They have been asleep but found ways to be awaken in order to meet their needs. 

If we would take time to go back through history we would find that each generation of people 
are accreted for some type of awakening. The first people that is beleived to exist on earth was 
the prehistoric man. They were given the name because their existance came before man 
learned how to write. Although they could not write they felt a need to know how to 

46 



communicate with one another. Therefore, they achieved this task by drawing signs and 
symbols on the walls of their caves. This need still exist today. We must know how to 
communicate with one another or the world world be destroyed. 

During the period 1000-500 B.C. the people in the Western world awakened to the fact that 
they needed to learn in order to survive. The people of Greece is given credit for beginning the 
light of learning. They organized the first form of government which was a democracy. They 
established trade rules to connect one country with another. They developed a form of religion 
where by man worshiped many Gods. They established social classes and a form of education. 
As different countries continued to compete with each other for material wealth all that had 
been achieved was destroyed by war. 

The next period in History was called the Middle Ages. This period is considered to be one of 
the most important periods because man turned from the craving of material wealth to religious 
ideals. In the Western world the institution that gave direction and meaning to the lives of the 
people was the great Roman Catholic Church. This mighty organization touched the lives of men 
at almost every walk of life. It was during this time that men went on crusades spreading the 
ideas of Christianity all over the world. After awakening to the fact that Christ's way is the only 
way, man begin to make progress again. 

As we reach the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, or the beginning of Modem times, man 
began to show more and more curiosity about their world. They made longer voyages. They 
asked more questions about the nature of things. They thought more freely about the world 
around them. They began to make changes in their religion and in their forms of government. 
Slowly they changed the world from old ways into the direction of our modem world. 

It was during this period in history that Columbus set sail and discovered the continent of 
North America. Religious percussion was one of the major reasons that led to the discovery of 
this great country. 

Since its discovery in 1492 men of all descriptions have been living here in a daze. The country 
grew at such a fast rate that it was almost difficult to keep up with its progress. Land and wealth 
was discovered from ocean to ocean. Homes and industries grew up from ocean fronts to 
mountain sides. The greatest net work of highways and railroads covered the country side like a 
weed. A democratic form of government was established to insure each person of life, liberty 
and the persuit of happiness. This country stand today as the wealthiest coimtry in the world 
and one with many faults. It is my belief that this is due to the fact that we have lived in a daze 
for these many years. We have pushed aside the one that blessed us with the many blessings 
that we now enjoy. 

Realizing that we have tried to awaken man many times through-out the history of this 
country but as of today we have not succeeded. With a democratic form of government we had 
to suffer the war between the states to awaken man of the fact that system of slavery would not 
stand. We had to have riots, sit-inns, burnings and killings to let man know that social injustice 
would no longer be tolerated. We had to be a witness to the assassination of outstanding black 
and white leaders before we realized that corruption still existed in the heart of man. We had to 
hear the great episode of watergate before we realized that our government was not functioning 
on its basic principles. We took prayer out of our public schools and opened the door to drugs 
and the like of self-respect-we have tried many things to try and solve our problems - violence 
and non-violence - law and justice - war and atomic power but with the tremendous amount of 
knowledge we have, we have failed to try God. 

Therefore, tonight in my 13th Annual Message to this Convention I challenge you to do as the 
people of the Middle Ages did - wake up and let Christ be the center of your life - bring Him in 
your homes and let Him solve your problems. Put Him back in your schools so that your 
children can acquire a holesome education and above all keep Him first and far most in your 
Churches so that the light of the world will not go out. 

As you go on your daUy task, just Remember: 

John: 15-12, "This is my Commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you." 

Matthew: 17-21, And Jesus said unto them, because of your unbelief; for verily I say unto you, 
if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to 
yonder place: and it shall remove and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 

2 Cor. 12-9, And He said unto me, my g^ace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made 
perfect in weakness- 
Many presidents conclude their Annual Message with a thought for living, some close with 
recommendations to the body and some closes with a statement of resignation. Of the three I 
have chosen neither. I would like to close this Annual Address with a tribute to two ladies of this 
convention that have been an inspiration to my life. I believe that you should give a person 
flowers while they live. I would like for Mrs. Laura Fuller and Mrs. Naomi Johnson to please 
come forward. 

47 



I would like for you to know tonight that you have been and inspiration to my life. You have 
always treaded me with the greatest respect, you have always had words of encouragement to 
offer when things were down and you have always extended a glad hand shake of fellowship and 
love. This have have had a great influence on my life and I wanted you to know this so that you 
would not think that your many years of service have not been in vain. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Evelyn Anderson

JUNIOR PRESIDENrS ADDRESS 

President Anderson, Jr. Directress, Mrs. Lewis; Brother Moderator, other Ministers, 
Officers, Delegates, Members and Friends of the Women's Auxiliary and Jimior Missionary 
Department of the High Point Educational and Missionary Association: As I stand before you 
this afternoon for my second time to attempt to deliver an address, I would like to thank aU of 
you who has made this event possible for me. I greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ from whom all blessing flow. Today I would like to speak to you from the subject 
"Sharing Good News," for my scripture lesson Romans 1:16 says, "For I am not ashamed of the 
gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew 
first, and also to the Greek." 

Everyone like to share good news, young, junior and elderly people alike all like to share good 
news, whenever you recieve a gift or take a trip we all want to tell some body about it, but this 
afternoon the good news that I would like to share with you is the news of the gospel of Jesus 
Christ. 

Young people, as you travel about in your daily walk of life, I know that you are encircled with 
the pleasures the world has to offer you, there are all sorts of temptations set before you, drugs, 
marijuana, uppers and downes, fast cars and many other things that the world is sharing the 
news about, but as Christians, we are to be witness of Christ, Acts 1:8 says, "But ye shall 
receive power after that the Holy Ghost come upon you: And ye shall be witnesses unto me." It 
is therefore young people, the responsibility of Christians to carry out the love mission of Jesus. 

48 



We are to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We are not the wreeking erew but 
the construction team of good will. We are not lawmakers but love makers, the world is kMAJag 
to the Christians today for moral integrity. (Colossians 3:1-4, 9-17) tells us to set then* affeetkm 
on things above not on things on the earth. For ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in 
God. When Christ who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory. For 
which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience. Ye have put off the 
old man with his deeds, and put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image 
of Him that created Him; Put on therefore as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of 
mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering: For beating one another and 
forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also 
do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. and let the 
peace of God rule in your hearts to which also ye are called in one body; And be ye thankful. Let 
the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching admonishing one another in 
Psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in hearts to the Lord. And what - 
so ever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the 
Father by Him." 

Missionaries can never emphasize theimportance of witnessing for Christ. The life that you live 
tells the best story not only are you the witness about Christ in your church but in your homes, 
your schools, your communities, your jobs and your ever endeavoring. Remember young people 
where ever you go people are always watching you and are aware of what you are doing, so in 
my conclusion I would like to leave this poem with you and remember our sub topic - "Ye Shall 
Be Witness Unto Me." 

"We are building every day. 
In a good or evil way 

And the structure as it grows 

With our inmost soul disclose 

Till in every arch and line 

And our faults and failures shine 

It may grow a castle grand, 

Or a wreck upon the Sand." 

"Do you ask what building this 

That can show both pain and bliss 

That can be both dark and fair? 

Lo, its name is charter. 

Build it well, what e're you do; 

Build it straight and strong and true; 

Build it clean and high and broad; 

Build it for the eye of God."
